Revitalizing Monticello
There are many reasons for the community to actively encourage the revitalization of our downtown.
An economically healthy downtown:

  • Builds a positive image for its community. An attractive downtown reflects Monticello’s pride in itself and its future.
  • Creates job opportunities. A revitalized downtown attracts new investors and visitors while strengthening services offered to the local community.
  • Saves tax dollars. Revitalization stabilizes and improves the area’s tax base, and protects the investment already made in downtown infrastructure.
  • Preserves the communities historic resources. In an economically healthy downtown, property owners can afford to maintain the historic commercial buildings and thus preserve an important part of Jefferson County’s heritage.
  • Helps to control sprawl. Second stories can be converted into condos and luxury apartments, decreasing the need for more housing developments.
